Closed petition Specifically protect people's political views under discrimination law

The government should amend the Equality Act 2010 to specifically include Political Views to prevent people from losing their jobs because of which side of politics they align with.

More details

As it stands the Equality Act 2010 only protects people for the following; age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex & sexual orientation.

This leaves a hole for people to potentially be unfairly dismissed from the jobs or be unable to secure employment because they have a different political view.

How can people be free to choose the political preference when there is a risk of losing their livelihoods.
